Produced entirely by high school students, 

TEDxLagunaBlancaSchool ​is a day-long conference where

incredible people come together to share their ideas.

TEDxLagunaBlancaSchool is currently on a pause due to COVID-19

Our team had to make the hard decision to cancel our Spring 2021 event and put our TEDx event on pause until health conditions improve. 


As we all adjust, our team is continuing to work safely and enthusiastically on the growth of this program. We understand that this is disappointing news, and we thank everyone for their support over the past three years. Our school is dedicated to this program, and we are excited to bring TEDx back to our community soon!

Santa Barbara Independent

At Laguna Blanca School, students have found that an event with “ideas worth spreading” is also an event worth repeating.

Sean Smith, Speaker

Your event will forever be immensely special for me, not just because it was my first TEDx, but because of the experience you all created. 

Frances Carlson, Executive

This class has given me unparalleled opportunities to gain real-life experiences--through emailing, budgeting, scheduling and more.
